Tiffany Haddish was arrested in Georgia early Friday morning on suspicion that she was driving under the influence.

Officers in Peachtree City, Georgia, arrested the 42-year-old actress around 4 a.m. Friday after she allegedly fell asleep at the wheel, TMZ reported, citing police.

Police had received a call that a driver was dozing off on the road. Officers had a description of the vehicle and were on the lookout for it when they spotted Haddish pulling into a neighborhood, according to the department.

Cops conducted a traffic stop on Haddish's car, and she was arrested for DUI and improper stopping on a roadway. She was transported to Fayette County Jail "without incident," Page Six reported, citing Peachtree City police.

Police suspect that the "Girls Trip" star had been smoking marijuana, according to TMZ.

Haddish was only in police custody for a few hours. She posted $1,666 to bond out of jail around 6:30 a.m., records obtained by TMZ showed.

Haddish's rep has not responded to requests for comment.

She has not tweeted or posted about the incident on Instagram. However, Haddish appears cheerful as she flashed a big smile to the camera in a mugshot obtained by TMZ.

The "Night School" star has been dealing with a lot of loss lately, including the deaths of her grandmother who raised her, her dog and her close friends Bob Saget and producer Carl Craig, the outlet noted. Saget died Sunday at age 65.

Haddish has been open about her emotional struggles. In an interview with Extra published Friday to promote her upcoming Apple TV+ show "The Afterparty," the comedian admitted that she was not in good spirits recently due to "some losses."

"My career is blowing things out of the water, my life, because I’m a human, it feels like it’s in shambles, but it’s not. I’m just sad because I’ve had some losses," she told the outlet.

She went on to share her first memory of Saget, revealing that she first met him "when he came into the comedy camp and I got on stage and to tell some of my jokes."

"He goes, 'Good, that's good. Now keep the time…' Like, stick to time," she continued, explaining that she went over her allotted three minutes. "I was going over the time… I wanted to tell my whole story."

On Monday, she also paid tribute to Craig, who passed away over the weekend. She shared a photo of the music producer on Instagram and expressed in the caption how painful it was for her to lose another mentor.

"This one hurts a lot Carl Craig," Haddish wrote. "When I first met you, we laughed for three hours. That was in 2004 you taught me so much about this business, you protected me, pushed me, scolded me, advised me, and congratulated me. I love you and I will keep you in my memories and heart. R.I.P."
